Severstal’s Cherepovets Steel Mill will reduce emissions of carbon monoxide and carbon dioxide through the introduction of new technology enrichment of iron ore concentrate at one of Severstal’s resource assets Olkon JSC. The environmental effect will be ensured due to an increase in the quality of iron ore concentrate produced by Olkon. The company achieved record monthly average indicators for the quality of raw materials. So, in October, the average iron content in the produced concentrate of Olenegorsk GOK was 68.78%.

The high iron content allows to reduce the consumption of fluxes limestone in coke-agglomeration production and, as a result, to reduce the consumption of solid fuel coke breeze for its sintering. Reducing the consumption of coke breeze gives a reduction in CO emissions from CherMK sources, since the process of sintering of raw materials occurs in sintering machines, which is accompanied by the release of CO. The event is included in a comprehensive plan to reduce emissions of pollutants in the city of Cherepovets for 2019 - 2024, developed as part of the national project "Ecology".
